Veronica Dahl (Simon Fraser University, Canada)
Jørgen Villadsen (Technical University of Denmark), co-chair jv@imm.dtu..dk

Workshop Purpose:

The CSLP 2008 workshop addresses the question of constraints and language processing from an interdisciplinary perspective. Constraints are widely used in linguistics, computer science, and psychology. How they are used, however, varies widely according to the research domain: natural language processing, knowledge representation, cognitive modelling, problem solving mechanisms, etc. The purpose is to pursue a paradigm, unifying the different approaches into a common framework capable of explaining how constraints play a role in representing, processing and acquiring linguistic information, and this from a formal, technical, and cognitive perspective.

Workshop Topics:

The topics include, but are not limited to, constraint-based linguistic theories, constraints in human language comprehension and production, context modelling and discourse interpretation, acquisition of constraints, probabilistic constraint-based reasoning, constraint satisfaction technologies and constraint logic programming.

Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit a full paper of up to 12 pages in PDF format.
The font size must be at least 10 pt when printed on A4 paper.
It is recommended that the LaTeX "article" style is used.
